You have not specifically addressed this, but have you considered the ramifications on your children's socialization skills.
Education is all well and good, but if one is socially handicapped, their ability to effectively communicate and navigate the complex social structures of the modern world may result in some negative consequences.

So, you disagree that Home Schooled children are not properly "socialized"?? What does that mean exactly. What is your definition of "socialized"??/

Yes I am.
One does not learn how to socialize in high school. High school students do not socialize with anybody else outside of their own group. The popular people with the popular people, the jocks with the jocks, and so on.
The only outside socialization happens is when a jock needs a nerd to do their homework then they'll bully the nerd into submission, as well as the popular people bullying and making fun of anybody else who isn't popular.
Socialization in high school, what a crock. There is no real socialization in high school.
